Puxton Church & Nature Reserve

Puxton, North Somerset (ST406 633)

Puxton is a particularly fine example of a shrunken medieval settlement. The earliest archaeology visible is a Romano-British settlement on the Dolemoors (now a nature reserve run by the Avon Wildlife Trust: http://www.avonwildlifetrust.org.uk/), where slight earthworks, often marked out by different types of vegetation, can be seen (ST 415 631). Around the 10th century people started to settle on the marshes for a second time in an oval-shaped enclosure. The church, with a remarkable leaning tower, is now redundant but cared for by the Church Conservation Trust

When visiting Puxton the best place to park is by the small village green just to the north of the church.
